Seems Pretty Practical

I have said for many years that Impractical Jokers is the funniest show on television. I was watching reruns the other day and I noticed a little image in the corner with information about tickets still being available for the Impractical Jokers cruise. I had no idea that there was such a demand for the show. I figured they do alright doing their live improv or whatever, but going on a cruise ship seems like a real commitment . I looked into this cruise, I must say, they have a decent line up of comedians, apparently the stigma of boat act is not what it once was. The pricing on it seems legit, but you would really have to be like mildly obsessed with the show to dedicate vacation time to go on this thing, you might as well just go on any cruise. To be fair, I don’t get the cruise thing anyways, but hey, these guys have a nice little racket going, let them profit while they can, God Bless em.

In my research of this cruise, I also found out they filmed a feature length movie. Okay, I get it, the Jackass boys did it and those films were pretty successful. This sounds an alarm though, like this is the peak and now comes the decline. The bigger they get, the more they are recognized which in turn means, you can’t keep pulling of the scenarios. So how does this all end?

Apparently with them hosting a game show on TBS called Misery Index. You gotta have a Plan B.

Hey good for them, capitalize while you can or in the words of The Game, “You gotta get your money right.”

What A Drag?

So this new Vince Vaughn/ Mel Gibson movie Dragged Across Concrete sounds fucking dope!

Here is the plot from Wikipedia:

Two policemen, one an old-timer (Mel Gibson), the other his volatile younger partner (Vince Vaughn), find themselves suspended when a video of their strong-arm tactics become the media’s cause du jour. Low on cash and with no other options, these two embittered soldiers descend into the criminal underworld to gain their just due, but instead find far more than they wanted awaiting them in the shadows

Of course people reviewing it say it is racist, misogynistic, yadda, yadda, yadda.

Who cares? It sounds like it is going to be awesome. Reviewers don’t like it because this shows how people actually are and not how they think people should be.

I’m loving Vince Vaughn since his DUI. I love Mel Gibson since his DUI. Not to mention his hilarious audio tapes, blow me then Jacuzzi seems rather reasonable. I know it seems blasphemous for me to like him since he may not particularly care for Jews and I’m a Heeb, but what do you want he is Australian, they don’t like Jews, but who does? I’m sorry but all should be forgiven with Apocalypto. Great flick!

Anyway, can’t wait for this movie to drop. Looks like it will be a good one!

Here are this week’s new releases as per Rotten Tomatoes.

Trevor Jackson stars in this updated remake of the 1972 film, and while we don’t have an official plot synopsis yet, the original follows a cocaine dealer trying to secure one last deal before leaving the business.
Directed By: Director X.
Ruth’s Review: This actually comes out today, yuck.
Pixar’s superpowered Parr family are back in this sequel that picks up literally right where The Incredibles left off and follows Elastigirl’s return to fame, while Bob and the kids try to get used to normal life.
Directed By: Brad Bird
Ruth’s Review: Not for me, but I bet it kills at the box office.
Ed Helms, Jon Hamm, and Jeremy Renner star in this high-concept comedy — based on a true story — about a group of friends who have been engaged in an elaborate, decades-long game of tag.
Directed By: Jeff Tomsic
Ruth’s Review: I can tell that this will somehow be fouled up though an interesting premise. Too bad, because Ed Helms is a really good comedic actor.

I Was Right

I watched All Eyez On Me and boy, oh boy, was I right about it. It was not good at all. Aside from the music, the whole thing was super corny.

I hope they took liberties with the storyline because it stunk.

The acting was not good either, dear Lord, maybe that’s why there was no Oscars So White hashtag this time around. (Though I didn’t much like the N.W.A. movie either.)

I wouldn’t waste time watching this, but I felt I had to give it a try after allowing myself to sit through the Schumer-Hawn flop Snatched. To be fair, the Tupac movie was far better.

Image result for mercedes lane license to drive

I was at work the other day and realized there is somebody in my company with the name Mercedes Lane.


Holy cow! For those of you not in the know, that was the character played by a very young Heather Graham in the Corey Haim-Corey Feldman teen romp License to Drive.

You know? The soundtrack featured the great Billy Ocean’s Get Outta My Dreams, Get Into My Car.

I can’t believe it.

I want to meet her.
